I think I may be becoming a bit of a quilting recluse. If I’m not downstairs in the studio quilting, I’m sleeping! Last night the girls came to read to me in the studio. Very sweet. They actually enjoy being in there with me. Well, they like to play in there more than anything. They draw or play “sewing store.” That’s my favorite. Those colorful spools are just too tempting for them not to play with. 🙂
So I’ve been quilting my days away. The amazing thing is…I learn something new every day. What works, what doesn’t. I hate it when it doesn’t. I feel like I get braver with trying new designs and ideas with each quilt. What is still a challenge for me?? Figuring the time it takes me for each quilt. It seems like every time I think “oh, this quilt should go quickly,” that’s the quilt that takes me the longest!! I’m still on a learning curve with scheduling time for each quilt. I’m thinking that will come to me as my experience grows.
I wanted to give you just a small peek at a client quilt. I don’t want to share too much because I usually like it to be a surprise for my clients. She mentioned that she has checked my blog to see if I’ve posted her quilts. I will soon because they are being shipped off to her. Deb has waited very patiently, so I know she’ll enjoy a tiny preview.
I’m sure you know what I’ll say next…I LOVE it!!! I can’t wait to reveal the rest. I tried some new designs and techniques. The fabric is American Primer by Minick and Simpson for Moda. It’s so gorgeous. I will give all the details with the reveal. 🙂
It’s nice to have company when I’m quilting away.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
